"SOURCE CODE" finale! Oracle's past entanglements with Gotham City's underworld have gotten the Birds in deep trouble as Calculator, Catwoman and Poison Ivy all pull the team into their own dark agendas! Even if they can get themselves out of this mess, the question remains: Does Oracle really belong with the Birds of Prey, or is he a criminal at heart?

    Another great issue of a great book! This title continues to charge forward in the right direction with great characterization and playing with the sense of nostalgia that is part of the "Rebirth" retooling of the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Despite the jarring shift in art style, issue #13 concluded the “Source Code” story arc on a hilarious, exhilarating and unexpected note. I am all for one, immensely ecstatic for this team-up consisting of The Birds of Prey, Poison Ivy and Catwoman. I really hope the art style presented in the latter portion will improve in future issues. But overall, this is a fantastic read and one helluva way to end an arc! Bravo to everyone!

    A good first two thirds with a clunky conclusion. Read Full Review

    Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #13 provide the "Source Code" arc with a satisfying ending. Julie Benson and Shawna Benson continue to show their clear understanding of who all Birds of Prey are. With the return of Barbara Gordon as Oracle the Bensons have opened up even more avenues to explore the Birds of Prey's dynamic, especially with Catwoman and Poison Ivy joining the team. These additions make the future of Batgirl and the Birds of Prey even more exciting. Read Full Review

    Batgirl and the Birds of Prey is about as consistent as you can get, delivering entertaining stories with wonderful comradery amongst its cast. It won't top your pull list every week, but you'll rarely regret spending time in their world. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 8, 2017

    Batgirl and the Birds of Prey continues to underwhelm as its story and art feel uneven as hell.  Yeah, we had an art change in this book, which is understandable, but for where our heroes end up at the end of this issue, you'd never know that shit was just getting real at the beginning of it and everything just ends up feeling like it doesn't belong with the rest of the books coming out of DC right now.

    Like I said, this isn't a bad issue of Batgirl And The Birds Of Prey, especially if you're after an easy read which doesn't tax your brain in any way. Just don't think for a second that this is good. It isn't. Read Full Review

    Again,Paquettes cover seems too photo-influenced. Im sure its something that hasbeen done for decades, but here it appears to be painfully obvious. As an artdirector I used to work for once told a client, If you want somethingphoto-realistic, then take a photo. Leave the drawing out of it.Unfortunately, Marvel beat DC to the cosplay cover idea.
